It seems to me that though there might not be a right and wrong way to pray (and I don’t know that I would make that concession just yet, at least not with more thought), there is certainly better and worse ways to pray. Otherwise I cannot understand why Jesus taught us to pray. And it seems to me that if we are going to look for a better or right way to pray, Jesus’ prayer is a better place to look that Annie Lamott. Before anyone jumps on me, I love Annie Lamott. It just strikes me that her quip about her two prayers might be more clever than it is helpful. Jesus’ prayer seems to incorporate a lot more than just those two elements.

By the way—hello, Sheri.
